PETA revealed horrors at , one of PetSmart’s main animal suppliers, including throwing live animals into the trash, crude neuter surgeries performed in a dark and filthy room by a layperson, depriving animals of desperately needed veterinary care, and leaving them to cannibalize each other, suffer, and die alone in their cages.

When Petco, PetSmart, and other stores returned sick, injured, or unwanted animals, the animals often went for days without water. One rabbit arrived alive at a store, which turned the animal away. The rabbit died en route back to Holmes Farm. PetSmart will provide space where people can meet cats, rabbits, birds and small animals that are available for adoption.

ou know those plastic tubs that people use to store holiday decorations, old blankets, and clothes in the attic? Well, an animal dealer that supplies small animals to PetSmart, Petco, Pet Supplies Plus, and many other stores uses even smaller containers to house live animals.PetSmart eventually stopped buying animals from Holmes Farm—but only after failing to act for months, even when federal officials’ findings were publicized. Petco initially claimed in January 2016 that it had severed ties with Holmes Farm, before it was notified of PETA’s findings by the Associated Press. But for more than a month after Petco’s December 2015 visit to Holmes Farm—during which its representatives were never seen looking at the freezer or the filthy cooler in which hundreds of animals were crudely killed—its stores continued to order and receive animals by the hundreds from Holmes Farm, even as the USDA began its inspection.nimals crammed into filthy, crowded plastic bins stacked into shelving units like old bank statements. Living beings deprived of water for days or even weeks. Sick and injured animals denied veterinary care. Emaciated, severely dehydrated animals desperate for water. Animals cruelly killed by being gassed or frozen to death. We’ve seen it time and time again at dealers that sell animals to pet stores, and now we’ve seen it again at Reptiles by Mack, a reptile mill in Xenia, Ohio, that breeds and sells frogs, lizards, turtles, and other animals to pet stores across the country, such as PetSmart.Please, pledge never to buy pet supplies from retailers that sell any animals. Let PetSmart officials know that you’ll instead buy supplies from businesses that don’t sell animals, such as Target, Walgreens, or online retailers.PetSmart is well aware that investigation after investigation into its animal suppliers has found factory-farm conditions, filth, crowding, deprivation, neglect, cruelty, and prolonged, painful death. Yet it continues to sell animals and do business with these mills. Last month, came under fire for purchasing furry companion animals from a breeder where hundreds of animals were neglected and dying. Now, a shows what life is like for reptiles sold at PetSmart, and their situation might be even worse.
